|Millano Brothers IV - Makunouchi Bento|
A tribute to B Movies & VHS exclusives. Very few people knew the fact that Makunouchi Bento have scored one of the most obscure imaginary movies in the history of VHS exclusives: Millano Brothers IV. The magnetic tapes (thought to be permanently lost) were accidentaly found by one of the guys’ grandmother in an old macaroni box in her attic, and are now brought to your attention. Out of the 10 hours of original material, we’ve selected 3 songs, marking 3 important moments in the movie...
|Swimé - Makunouchi Bento|
Comment suis-je, à mon tour, devenu dresseur de lion? Seul sur ma chaise, ennuyé par ma vie de gadjo guindé, je m'amuse de me lasser, rêvant de ces étranges forêts, d'aventures sur les routes ombragées, ces cirques itinérants qui ne cessent de bouger et le roulement, cliquetis redondant, de caravanes séculaires abritant quelques Hommes qui se racontent, la nuit tombée, quelques mystères égyptiens oubliés...

|Makunouchi Bento - Trcutu - [one020] - Makunouchi Bento|
This latest offering from Makunouchi Bento is a special one indeed - interpretation of and sound excursion into a few of their favorite classical compositions by such powerful and original composers as Erik Satie, Anton Arensky, Maurice Ravel., they hold nothing back while adapting them within the Mabento realm. With its twists of melancholy, nostalgia, and even childlike amusement - Trcutu manages to hold onto a genuine historical and aesthetic interest found within some of the originals...

|Lament of the Fishing Robot - Makunouchi Bento|
|Makunouchi Bento - Live at TM04BASE [od068] - Makunouchi Bento|
Makunouchi Bento has created a very personal style over the years, working with melody, noise and rhythm and often leaving some space for more explosive sounds and beats; this live recording is a continuation and expansion of themes brought up on 'Rokurokubi' (the numia battle winner track) and 'Kunitoki' - at times it is playing with bits of somehow dark and intriguing japanese vocals and atmospheric textures, acoustic bleeps and noises that later develop a ground-breaking, urban/dub breakbeat,...

|Inca Nu Te Iubesc - Makunouchi Bento|
|Makunouchi Bento - Vitoru - [one013] - Makunouchi Bento|
This experimental ep was made for the Romanian magazine INCEPEM, issue 3 (september) with FUTURE set as the theme. Makunouchi Bento (or mabento for short) developed it following the speculation that digital music technology is increasingly moving torwards their attempt at recreating analog warmth and real world modeling (instruments, ambience/room, the recreation of previous mediums, etcs). This paradox is approached in a variety of ways here; sometimes through atmosphere, others through tube em...

Our very constant-releasing chill duo Makunouchi Bento is really making us fall in love with lusk and crunchy atmospheres.

|Makunouchi Bento - Crisp (q's qrocant mix) [od037] - Makunouchi Bento|
the romanian chill duo astonishes our baka minds with a ray of crystal loveliness; portray of a reverie landscape, enfolding sunny spots of greenery, and giving the sensation of such a beautiful sound that u can never hear in earth. crispy butterbeats and yea qrocant mellowness, all overgrowin with azure moss and flowers so sweet, and the senses faint picturing them; while far below water-blooms and melodic winds which wear the sapless foliage of this candid ocean, know the voice, and suddendly ...
|Makunouchi Bento - Ince nu te iubesc [Cam074] - Makunouchi Bento|
Finally, fellow netaudio scene friends Makunouchi Bento ( ogredung , one, enoughrecords, apegenine recordings, miasmah, eerik inpuj sound, kikapu and some others ) have a track for us camomille folks. The romanian duo give us almost 10 minutes of sublime, noisy ambiences. This track is part of a project organised by well-known swedish curator Johanna Billing and was first played october 6th at H.arta Gallery from Timisoara (Romania)...

|Makunouchi Bento - Children of moog [vacuum mix] [od051] - Makunouchi Bento|
Intelligent electro-doses are set free from this vacuum mix: dry and well balanced, and tough, minimal and deep, alienating, flowing and digging sounds. Electronic bounces and cyber melodies composed with hip-hop, reversed and retrigged rhythmics, but very still at the same time. Values of deepness and composure are emerging, values of research and push towards something not clear and defined yet, but keeping that a-normal silhouette typical of the romanian duo.
|Makunouchi Bento - Micat (live) [od054] - Makunouchi Bento|
Soon after the TM02BASE live-set in Romania, Micat is delivered here to us and we cant help enjoying this crazy IDM/synth inspired piece of electroacustics as if we were there. The chill dynamic duo is this time undertaking a different kind of path through dis-intelligence, dark-flavoured synthetic airs and drummism a la Kunitoki. The whole piece is a pendulum in a long-time experienced experimental life.
|Makunouchi Bento - Kunitoki (edit) [od045] - Makunouchi Bento|
More electroxperimentalism from our fav dynamic duo; Wakax and Qewza take and wear their gusoku for some truly evil occasion. Nipponic voices straight from inferno and totally crazy beats attack our mind and go directly into the brain; a continuous assault to our senses, which definitely explodes after 3mins of cyber intro. A demon is being driven out from one of the numerous, countless hells underground, and with his beautiful smile makes us participants of his sumptuous feast; but, we can neve...
|Makunouchi Bento - Lament of the fishing robot ep [Cam088] - Makunouchi Bento|
Great artists and friends Makunouchi Bento (ogredung, miasmah, one, kikapu) are back at camomille with what we think is their best work to date. Lament of the fishing robot ep is motion and color captured and translated into sound. It is immersing in its great musical and emotional depth and in its force of character. These 10 minutes of music serve greatly to prove our point, Makunouchi Bento are left unscathed by current trends and continue to do what they do best, all the while evolving into ...

|Miopedi: Errata - Leenak|
|Flika - Makunouchi Bento|
It is just silence in our city - there is only static in the air. No car horns honks, no bees, no crazy dogs and old ladies. Not even that usual rolling tincan sound. Nothing. Just blue vertical lines of silence. And static. Oh... I said it again. I started my walkman in and I search in a bunch of tracks. Rewind - forward - pause. What is wrong with me?! I know blue silence when I see one. And this is one of those moments...
|Leenak and Makunouchi Bento - Miopedi [kpu046] - Leenak and Makunouchi Bento|
Our second collaborative project in as many releases, Miopedi is more of a split release that was planned and conceived in a collaborative fashion, rather than the usual joint EP. Hence the tracks being mixed up by the two artists. You might recognize Leenak (aka Kaneel) from a previous Kikapu single and releases on a multitude of labels such as Camomille. The duo Makunouchi Bento has been seen all over the internet as of late, with a plethora of releases on various net.labels...
|Makunouchi Bento feat. Nagz - Morninfizik (rmx) [od066] - Makunouchi Bento & Nagz|
Although thought as a reprise of old amazing scene song Morninfizik, Makunouchi Bento and Nagz exult in this lovable effort with a bit of nostalgy and gameable moods; we personally like to consider this track as an adieu-tune from the duo, and a grandious welcome to the hungarian alias lurked behind the Nagz moniker, an everlasting name in the netscene. In things such as the deliberately cheesy chippy-synth lines or trippy touches, Morninfizik is definitely the song to long for.

|Leenak & Makunouchi Bento - Miopedi : Errata - [one04] - Leenak & Makunouchi Bento|
Leenak (kaneel) and Makunouchi Bento have once again put their minds together and created 'Errata', under their Miopedi collaboration. Often split releases come across with a fitting split persona, though Miopedi : Errata has strong personalities reminiscent of the ambience and sound that seemingly existed in memory long before you heard them. As surreal and haunting as the accompanied artwork, it's tempting to hunt down the relation and reason behind this caustic ambience....
